Chocolate Chip Non-dairy “Ice Cream”

by | Feb 13, 2014 | Recipes | 4 comments

Outside it looks like marshmallow cream. The poodles are romping like two polar cubs. Every now and then they stop and take bites of the snow. Being an ice cream lover, I understand.

IMG_0624Unfortunately dairy products cause problems for many people. I discovered this when our daughter was very young. Ginny battled chronic ear infections until a nutritionist told me to take her off of all dairy products. I’d bought the commercials and made sure she got her daily supply of milk, yogurt, and cheese. Like magic, Ginny’s ear infections immediately disappeared as soon as we changed her diet.

Since that time I have my eye out for good non-dairy substitutes for my dairy favorites. Today I share my recipe for chocolate chip non-dairy “ice cream.” The avocado and coconut creamer add creaminess with healthy fats.

Chocolate Chip Non-Dairy Ice Cream

In a high-powered blender add the following ingredients.

½ Cup French vanilla coconut creamer (not coconut milk, as that will not be creamy enough.)

2 Tbsp. Raw agave nectar

1 ½ Tbsp. non-dairy chocolate chips

¼ Avocado (peeled)

2 – 2 ½ cups of ice

Start at low speed and kick up to high speed until fully blended. This makes two generous servings for regular eaters. I eat the whole thing like a large milkshake! Enjoy.

Feel free to email me with your questions. I’m happy to share brands and resources.
